The annual Synod Assembly is the synod’s highest legislative authority. The
powers of the Synod Assembly are limited only by the provisions in the Articles of
Incorporation, the synod constitution and bylaws, the assembly’s own resolutions, and the constitutions and bylaws of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

It is the goal of this synod to have a regular meeting of the Synod Assembly annually to foster cooperation and communication within the Synod and to provide direction for Synod officers, councils, committees, boards, or other organizations.
